Were you talked into
investing your
pension into a SIPP?

Thousands of people have been convinced to invest their pension pot with the promise of High Performing Investments and Guaranteed Returns.

In reality, these turned out to be high-risk unsustainable schemes.

 

Self-Invested Personal Pensions (SIPP), can provide you with more flexibility to invest your pension where you choose. However, they are high-risk and should only be used by experienced investors. Some administrators used unregulated companies and didn’t do their background checks on what they were allowing people to invest in. The SIPP administrators who allowed people access to investment schemes like Ethical Forestry, Global Plantations and InvestUS have profited massively from customers fees alone. They were making money while most people lost theirs after the high returns they were promised never happened.

Some of the SIPP providers responsible for mis-selling include:

  • Guinness Mahon
  • Berkeley Burke
  • The Lifetime SIPP Company
  • Carey Pensions
  • Greyfriars Asset Management
  • Liberty SIPP

Mis-sold SIPPs have become the subject of an increasing number of complaints made to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) and the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). After landmark litigation and regulation intervention more and more people have access to regaining some, or in some cases all of their lost investment!
